Red River Oat Bran Muffins

READY IN: 44mins
Recipe by cuisinebymae

This is from the makers of Red River Cereal. A healthy muffin that is a bit different. I started making these because I needed to get rid of a box of Red River Cereal (don't like it)-good in these!

I made these muffins using grapenut cereal instead of Red River. I added flax seed to the mix. I used raisins and dried cherries. I really enjoyed the taste, texture, and look of these muffins. Thanks!
